捍卫英国退出后的欧洲

马德里—据说好事总是降临到耐心等待的人头上。果真如此的话,那么姗姗来迟十年的欧盟新全球外交和安全政策战略(Global Strategy on Foreign and Security Policy)就是一件大好事。实际上,它正是欧洲所需要的。但其发布时机——英国投票脱离欧盟之后立即发布——可能导致它变成鸡肋。欧盟如何推进该战略将是欧洲工程未来的决定性因素。

该战略由欧盟外交和安全政策高级代表费德里卡·墨赫里尼(Federica Mogherini)制定,可谓切中要害:它提供了一个一致的指导性愿景和一个采纳具体政策的灵活框架。它实现了务实和进取的完美平衡,承认欧盟的局限性,并精确指明了需要的改进之处。

该战略“接地气”的视角可谓开宗明义:“我们需要一个更强大的欧洲。”这表明它与发布于2003年的上一版过时战略有了重大改变。上一版的第一句话显得相当别有用心:“欧洲从未如此繁荣,如此安全,如此自由。”

  3. Murdoch's Last Stand?

    Rupert Murdoch’s sale of 21st Century Fox’s entertainment assets to Disney for $66 billion may mark the end of the media mogul’s career, which will long be remembered for its corrosive effect on democratic discourse on both sides of the Atlantic.

    Since the hyperinflation of the 1970s, which central banks were right to combat by whatever means necessary, maintaining positive but low inflation has become a monetary-policy obsession. But, because the world economy has changed dramatically since then, central bankers have started to miss the monetary-policy forest for the trees.
